Vegan Ireland: the Vegan Society of Ireland launch their new Supporter Card, t-shirt, and tote bag, at a movie and food event, Saturday 6th April, 2013, at The Exchange, Exchange Street Upper, Dublin. Time: 2pm – 4pm.

“Not long ago, people said that Ireland was not ready for veganism. Well, it is now,” said Vegan Ireland press officer, Dr. Roger Yates.
Vegan Ireland, as a social movement organisation, is going from strength to strength, with more than 3,300 “likes” on their Facebook page and almost 2,000 subscribers to their online email updates and newsletters. Vegan Ireland’s bi-monthly Book Club, held at Cornucopia Wholefoods Restaurant in Dublin, is more popular than ever.

“Vegan groups seem to be springing up all over Ireland, from Cork to Limerick, Sligo to Galway,” said Dr. Yates. “A recent survey by Vegan Ireland showed that vegans were catered for in all 32 counties. We see this as a huge step forward towards making veganism a mainstream movement and philosophy.”

The mainstreaming of veganism in Ireland:-
• All of the major coffee multinationals stocking dairy alternatives
• All major Irish supermarkets stocking vegan alternatives dairy and meat
• Venues catering for all-vegan parties
• Vegan options in hotels and restaurants becoming the norm
• Vegan lifestyle books hitting the shelves
• Vegan Cookery courses available

Vegan Ireland’s Supporter Cards entitles supporters to cash discounts from a growing number of businesses around Ireland, including restaurants, shops, and holiday accommodation. Establishments already in the scheme include Cornucopia and Govinda’s Restaurants in Dublin, Hudson’s Wholefood Store in Cork, and Green Lodge Accommodation in Bantry.

Vegan Ireland’s new striking t-shirt design is available for women (S,M,L,XL) and men (M,L,XL) and the Vegan Ireland bags are available in green, yellow, and brown.

The event on the 6th includes the showing of the film, Making the Connection, which makes the case for veganism.

From an evolutionary stand point ye are useful idiots to have about the place , in the unlikely event that the Zombie apocalypse is kicked off by something in the animal food chain, we might depend on you.

Not a very nice thing to do Roger, you are what you eat and health is wealth so could you please please refrain from trying to entice people to damage their health with your Vegan propaganda.
The following link has some of the health issues which going Vegan imposes on people.

12 Year Old Vegan Has the Degenerating Bones of 80 Year Old
I believe that critical readers will be wary of anything that is published by someone from the Weston A. Price Foundation which is financed to push meat and dairy.

I don't think anyone anywhere has been threatened by anything to do with veganism.

With the possible exception of Ned O'Keeffe, who having been alerted to this thread on the widening commitment to veganism has promptly shat himself, is currently holding his breath in protest while simultaneously warning the nation telepathically via a mind meld with his favourite communications banamh that the army is about to take over Ireland.

Good man Ned down there in Rathcormac. The 'hill of pigs'.

You'd be amazed, the vitriol which is directed at people because they decide to eat a diet based solely on vegetables is displayed in all it's irrational glory by many on this site.

I find the vegan posts very informative and not particularly evangelical. It surely makes sense for vegans to push restaurants, shops and others to provide for them. At the moment it is very difficuilt to get vegan options in many places, mainly because the standard of cooking in this country is appalling and very boring. So much easier to fry a steak or stick a chicken in the oven, than to come up with imaginative, tasty and healthy vegan alternatives.

So no one should believe the article on the 12 year old vegan with an 80 year olds bone damage but they should listen to a vegan nutter pushing vegan lifestyle, you probably dont even see the irony Rogger.

Balance...

"Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life-cycle including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Vegetarian diets offer a number of nutritional benefits including lower levels of saturated fat, cholesterol, and animal protein as well as higher levels of carbohydrates, fibre, magnesium, potassium, folate, antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, and phytochemicals. Vegetarians have been reported to have lower body mass indices than non-vegetarians, as well as lower rates of death from ischemic heart disease, lower blood cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and prostate and colon cancer."
